• Welcome to Kindergarten!!  My name is Ms. Courteney Manning and I will have the pleasure of teaching your child this year. I am a tenth year teacher with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Reading and Mathematics. I have an 10 year old son who is currently in 5th grade. In my spare time I enjoy reading and taking him to exciting new places!

                 Your child is about to embark on an exciting learning adventure filled with rich experiences, multiple achievements, and everlasting friendships. Each day he/she will engage in meaningful instruction that is tailored to meet his/her needs. Some academic skills he/she will develop are recognizing sight words, segmenting and blending words, counting from 1 to 100, and solving addition/subtraction problems. Your child will also develop and enhance social skills. This will be achieved through daily implementation of cooperative learning with their peers.

                Moreover, it is my belief that children’s success is based upon a cooperative parent/teacher relationship. I am committed to developing and maintaining a positive partnership with you. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns. I can be easily reached through the Remind101 messaging system or by email: courteney.manning@atlanta.k12.ga.us   I thank you in advance for a great year filled with continued partnership!

    Educationally Yours,

    Ms. Manning
